#BuildingStories: Virtual Tour of the “Working Spaces” at Ten Broeck Mansion published August 31, 2020

Join us at Ten Broeck Mansion (c. 1798) for another episode of #BuildingStories, where we are exploring Albany’s buildings, what they mean to us, and how they are being preserved.

This Facebook Live event will take place on Thursday, September 3 at 5PM.

Join the event!

Executive Director, Kathryn Kostco will  examine the spaces that were used by those who built and made life in the mansion possible – enslaved people during the Ten Broeck era (1798-1813) and paid servants of African-American, Irish, and German backgrounds during the Olcott era (1848-1947).  We will start by discussing the use of outbuildings and then head into the mansion to examine the 1850 Butler’s Pantry up close.
